Eight decades on, the Holocaust continues to cast a dark shadow over the lives of survivors and their descendents. It is both a destructor of history, having erased the personal and family legacies of those who perished, and a towering historic event with frightening current-day resonance, as anti-semitism and authoritarianism surge worldwide. This event convenes authors and artists—including novelist Anne Berest (The Postcard), journalist Nina Siegal (The Diary Keepers) and academic Marianne Hirsch (The Generation of Postmemory)—whose work reconstructs lost histories and explores the trauma of later generations.

This program is supported as part of the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York and the support of Villa Albertine, in partnership with the French Embassy.
